But here in California it is often difficult to convince them to move. For instance, there is a company in Houston, Texas that wants to hire 50 US veterans immediately to drive cement trucks. The average salary is $60,000+. -- US veterans should take a serious look at this opportunity and make that move. Here are some great reasons: It's cheaper: Texas has the highest 'effective' pay check...

 Young Veterans Unemployed  It's ashamed what happening with our young veterans in today market. Given the risks they endure, it is troubling to think that many military veterans are having trouble entering the civilian labor market. While older veterans typically earn more and have similar employment rates as non-veterans in their same age group, that’s not true for younger veterans.  Unemployment Rate In 2013, the unemployment rate for young veterans aged 25-34 was 9.1 percent, compared to 7.4 for non-veterans in the same age group. This is the cohort that enlisted after September 11, 2001 and some risked their lives in the...

To All Veterans: “We sleep safely in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would harm us”. – George Orwell Freedom isn't free.

We cannot employ every veteran,...
